Linebacker Thomas Davis on Friday announced he recently learned he violated the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy.
In a video posted to his Twitter account, Davis said:

Everybody knows that I’ve been infatuated with doing whatever it takes to get him here, Davis said, per SB Nation’s Levi Damien, but really didn’t know how deep our conversations were going or how far along we were to making it happen. Somebody asked me what was harder: to get the 31 votes to go to Las Vegas or to get Jon Gruden, and by far to get Jon Gruden was the toughest.
The nearly聽$100 million deal would be a waste if the 54-year-old can’t adjust to today’s game after serving as the Monday Night Football color analyst for nine seasons.
The organization restructured this offseason, as Ted Thompson moved into a senior adviser role and Brian Gutekunst became the general manager. This may provide slight聽concern for Authentic Lance Alworth Jersey McCarthy’s long-term status, but Gutekunst has worked for the Packers since 1998.聽

McCarthy made a few changes, too, with a pair of new coordinators in Joe Philbin and Mike Pettine. Normally, coordinator hires pave the way toward a head coach’s dismissal. In this case, both should help improve the Packers and place them back in the postseason conversation.聽
Matt Nagy made a name for himself as an offensive coordinator under Andy Reid in Kansas City, which meant devising different ways to take advantage of a short-to-intermediate passing game.
Nagy became quite the schemer by his final season in Kansas City, accentuating his team’s strengths and gameplanning away from its weaknesses. Much of that relied on the skills of quarterback Alex Smith. Now in Chicago, Nagy’s offense will instead rely on Mitchell Trubisky.
The new head coach is ready to bring some signal-calling wisdom from his veteran quarterback to his second-year face of the franchise. Turns out, it might not be as difficult as imagined.
